When they picked up the Satan’s assignment, it was conspicuous that they were all out to kill him at the prime stage of his life.
All of their adventures and sinister plans however met with divine obstruction. Like a bird from the snare of the Fowler, he escaped. They thought to themselves, may be our strategies are wrong. This is a big miss! They said with a lamenting voice.
Having escaped all of the fiery darts, he grew up only to be faced with challenges. Having friends with the mindset of brooding upon them for a life-assignment, he thought it will safeguard him.
Little did he know that the enemies were pursuing him silently through one of his chosen friends.
These plots came up after several frantic efforts and attempts to get him killed failed utterly. He was aware of all of these but his life was secured because he must fulfill the whole essence of his existence.
An insider assassin, his friend, matched them with confidence to where he was with other friends while the sky was silent still.
The peeking sign was all that delivered him into their hands. He would have fought for his life but the understanding of time won’t have allowed him to and also for the sake of his other friends.
Arrested, falsely accused, scorned by both the young and old with terrible beatings. He was stripped naked and brutally murdered. Finally given a befitting treatment due to criminals with is blood dropping and dripping on the surface of the dried ground.
Few days later, they discovered that their actions were God’s divined and orchestrated through their ignorance.
The same man that was killed came back to life. The news spread like a gangrene, putting the enemies in disarray.
He was glad spending more days with his friends after which he ascended to where he was from- sitting at the right hand of the Father.
His name is JESUS.
He broke the long, dead silence that existed between God and man through his death on the cross and his Resurrection. He brought the heaven down to us.
“Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him as you yourselves know.
This man was handed over to you by God’s set purpose and foreknowledge and you with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing to him to the cross.
But God did raise him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him. ”
